Rating
Lieutenant Randy Sutton's fascinating collection of stories and memories, solicited from law enforcement officers across the country, offers a broad and insightful look at the many facets of police life: courage, exhilaration, frustration, loss, and even humor, from the everyday to the career-defining moments on the job. Told by the cops that lived them, these stories show what it truly means to protect and serve.Readers will come to recognize the faces behind the badge, as they witness officers charge into the unknown on The Beat, honor and mourn friends in The Fallen, hear the War Stories spread in police locker rooms and bars, discover the unbreakable line between civilian and cop in the Line of Duty, and feel the blood-boiling adrenaline during those life-altering moments when a cop must use Deadly Force. TRUE BLUE: To Protect and Serve is a funny, exciting, haunting compilation of true stories written by active and retired police officers, most of whom have never written before, alongside published officers from all over the United States. A portion of the royalties for this book will be donated to The National Law Enforcement Officers Memorial Fund.

Reviews

"It has been a long time since I read anything this vivid, dramatic, and moving. Literally, tears came to my eyes. So much dedication and bravery. The compelling true-life stories are far more gripping and inspiring than any novelist could invent." --David Morrell, New York Times bestselling author of First Blood and The Brotherhood of the Rose"A simply great book... Funny, sad, and, at times, haunting... Some of these fifty-five stories are lyrical, some are gritty, some so heartbreaking they make you cough up a tear and others are laugh-out-loud funny. And some are more thrilling than top suspense fiction. But they all come right from the heart that beats beneath the badge." --New York Daily News on True Blue: Police Stories by Those Who Have Lived Them"If you want to enter the hearts and minds of the men and women sworn to protect us, read True Blue.
